The Muttart Foundation has endorsed Imagine Canada’s call for a federal stimulus for the voluntary sector.
The global economic crisis affects the voluntary sector as well as government and business. There are reports of increased demands of services and signs that governments plan on cutbacks.
The Muttart Foundation, along with more than 70 other sector organizations, has endorsed Imagine Canada’s open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The letter calls on government to maintain the current level of support to the sector and to look at new measures to stimulate giving.
The Foundation has released the 2008 version of Talking About Charities. More than 3,800 Canadians were interviewed to obtain their views about charities and issues affecting charities. To access the report and detailed information, click here.
